A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Arrival in Tbilisi. It is a city that reflects a long history. You walk the streets and you can distinguish the blend of East and West. The city has developed a patina that blends the two influences perfectly. There is a certain vibrancy to Tbilisi. You had imagined it as a city of old things. You stand corrected, it is a youthful city with a very - very long history.
You head north to Kazbegi, deep into the Caucasus mountains. The landscape becomes more dramatic as the day progresses. The ancient churches you find on the way speak of a very deep spirituality. The citadels and medieval walls are full of histories that your private guides transmits with the riveting talent of the storyteller. Read more
The Nature of Caucasus
From the impressive mountainscapes you head to gentler slopes and eventually cross Georgia’s southern border to Armenia. The country presents itself to you slowly. You swim pleasantly before a lunch by the shores of lake Sevan and its emerald waters, and give in to the relaxing influence of nature.
The Yerevan region of Armenia is full of intensely spiritual sites. You are deeply moved by Etchmiadzin, the Holiest City for Armenian Christians. You visit several churches that have been here since the beginning of Christianity. Some of them stand in ruins, others are used today. The devout displays of faith show you a side of the Caucasus that is not just historical or cultural… It is something else. You stand in the place where Europe and Asia meet, where History and the Spirit meet, and it all happens amid a symphony of stones.
